Chanel’s Trompe l’Oeil: welcome to the new tattoo-chic trend!

Tattoos, however trendy they might be, are not usually that chic… But it might change very soon, when Chanel launches its Trompe l’Oeil, a decalcomania set of ephemeral skin jewellery that has already got the fashion world delirious with envy.
Tattoo applied on model before the show

Created for Chanel’s last show in Paris by Peter Philips, the brand’s Global Creative Director of Makeup, those fake tattoos were so talked about in fashion circles that they will now be launched commercially in shops.

Faithful to Coco’s spirit, they recall the emblematic codes of Chanel (black colour, chains, pearls necklace…), while injecting a slightly rebellious yet elegant edge to its classical fashion. They can be worn as necklace, garter (as recently seen on model of the moment Daisy Lowe) or around the wrist and ankle.

The Trompe L’œil by Chanel will launch on 1st March and will be sold £49 for a set of 55 individual tattoos, exclusively in Selfridges and the Chanel boutiques. We say, get on the waiting list now!
